Imagine a Central Florida where healthy choices are equitable and accessible, where your freeway exit does not determine your health. Issues like nutrition security, access to care, and chronic illnesses are just a few of our local priorities. From our urban core to our surrounding rural areas, we are fighting for longer lives by making the places where we live, learn, work, play, pray and heal as healthy as can be.
